Get right with God to get rid of Satan

This is in answer to Mrs. Smith’s letter in Danese. It’s the devil’s job to be everywhere deceiving and destroying all he can. One thing for sure, he never sneaks anywhere, not even in our hearts, unless we let him in.

If Satan is in your heart or your church, prayer is the only way to get rid of him.

Our Bible is our food to live by, not man. So if you have trouble with the devil, get right with God. Lay it all down to Him, for He is the only answer. God is the judge of us and all things. No one is perfect.

Huggie’s Hoopies are an embarrassment

You have got to be kidding. I watched the 2012-13 edition of Huggie’s Hoopies embarrass themselves against Michigan on national TV. Stumblers, bumblers, fumblers — and I’m being kind.

Huggie’s Hoops played like a girls’ middle school kickball team. This bunch couldn’t even beat Davidson College. I doubt they could beat the Davidson College women’s team.

Huggie-boy, after five long seasons in Morgantown, should by now be fielding respectable and competitive teams every year instead of making his annual excuses for their “youth.” It certainly didn’t take John Beilein five years in Morgantown to be competitive against every team he faced — remember his NIT victory?

Huggie has fielded only one good team in his WVU tenure. Please explain to me how it is possible that he gets rewarded a contract extension with option to do whatever he wants after the 2017 season. Conversely, what do the long-suffering Mountaineer faithful get in return for such an outrage?

 Answer: An old drunk whose best years are clearly behind him. Huggie can’t even get his fat posterior off the bar stool long enough to recruit any real talent.  

Another question: Am I the only WVU alum who feels this way? Personally, I have no intention of watching any more Mountaineer basketball so long as Huggie is “leading” the program.

Shame on him and shame on Oliver Luck for rewarding sloth and sub-standard performance. John Beilein laid down the gauntlet in Morgantown before he left to lead the program that blew us off the floor last night. Huggie has failed to pick it up. Worse than that — he has no intention of picking it up. He is enjoying a free ride into retirement.
